The first bodyboards had only crescent tail, bat tail appeared only early 90's. I would say that Bat Tail is very prone riding oriented ; bat tail + channel ( in my opinion ) make the board very stable in the curl and very easy for 360's trick ; Crescent Tail is best for Drop Knee ; it does not mean that you can't go prone with a crescent but DK on bat tail is not really easy..

If you are 100 % prone riding, go for Bat, if you are 100 % DK, Crescent is the choice and if you are versatile, crescent is again the best option ; for a 50/50 rider, two boards ( each with a diff. tail ) is ideal...
